....behold the ubiquitous Yankees suck image du jour.
I'm sure that by now, you all know where that image came from. It's none other than Johnny Damon, of course, muffing one of two fly balls in center field last night in Toronto, a game the Yankees lost, and a game which now has made Yankees hopes for a postseason berth very, very dim, indeed.
How sweeeeeeeet it is!
Now I'm not one to ordinarly exult in the misfortunes of others, but when those others are the Yankees... well, they are the exception that proves the rule, as it goes.
As for the Mets, a spectacular bottom of the eighth inning comeback against the Braves bullpen, which makes the Mets bullpen look like it's full of Mariano Riveras, resulted in a big W against the Braves, and a hold of the Mets' 1.5 game lead in the NL East, the Phillies having won last night as well.
Of course, the ubiquitous Billy Wagner had some strange comments after the game last night, rambling on about "focus," and "today's society," and "Hall of Fame," and "criticism," in a way that only Billy Wagner can. Of course, little of it made any sense; it was more a nonsensical no point to it rambling rose of a rant that left me scratching my head and wondering what mind-altering drugs Billy might have been consuming.
That's right, Billy...I'm talking about you.
The Mets series against the Braves continues this evening at Shea Stadium.
